Student Employment

Employment allows students to gain valuable work experience and is a practical way to contribute to the cost of their education. The types of positions available for students are classified as either Federal Work-Study (FWS) program employment or non-FWS part-time employment.

Rollins Earn and Learn (REAL)

Rollins' Earn and Learn Program is a signature program at the School of Public health that offers full-time degree-seeking MPH/MSPH students applied public health work experiences in real-world settings. REAL offers are made based on information reported on the Federal Application for Federal Student Aid, FAFSA, and are included in the student's financial aid package.

Teaching Assistants and Graduate Fellows

Teaching assistantships and graduate fellowships are granted at the departmental level in various graduate and professional programs, and those interested should inquire with the appropriate academic department. Payment for these types of positions varies by school.

Federal Work Study

Based on your FAFSA and your academic program, you may be offered a Federal Work-Study (FWS) position in your financial aid package. Federal Work Study positions earnings are deposited into your personal bank account via direct deposit and will not be posted to your student account. The FWS team also hosts a Federal Work-Study Job Fair every August, during which students can learn more about the FWS program and specific opportunities.
